CureTB is a referral and continuity of care program for tuberculosis patients and their contacts who travel between the United States, Mexico and Central America. Services are available for patients, their families and providers from any state, city or community in these areas. CureTB is part of the San Diego County Public Health Services TB Control Branch. Over 1000 referred patients were served between 2010 and 2012.
CureTB facilitates and supports continuity of care for individuals with active tuberculosis and their contacts by facilitating the exchange of information between health systems and providing education to patients about their illness and how to access follow-up care. We provide linkages to ongoing care and follow-up for all referred patients.
CureTB accepts referrals from health departments, correctional facilities, and other entities that diagnose or treat patients with tuberculosis.
